    I am wondering what people do to achieve a consistent look and feel for
    their websites? Does anybody here do anything similar to the Composite View
    design pattern, where a view renderer effectively reads a configuration and
    builds up the HTML by choosing particular views based on state and other
    factors? I am working on an ecommerce site, and there are quite a few
    different screens. In the vanilla fashion, the HTML in the aspx forms is
    duplicated, and I would like to avoid this.

    If anybody has any advice, links to papers etc on this stuff I would be
    extremely grateful.

  4. I'm using the same method, which works well, though the auto tag completion
    doesn't seem to work in HTML view of ASPX pages. Probably because the
    <HTML> tags have been put into the basepage. Sometimes this means that I
    end up developing stuff on a test page which derives from the normal
    System.Web.UI.Page class (and includes the HTML tags), before moving it into
    another aspx page which derives from my custom base page (eg.
    Mun.Web.UI.Template), where the HTML tags are in the template page.

    Do you get the same behaviour, and/or any ideas to get around the tag
    completion problem?
